Here’s a review of the questions:
- What is the name of the holiday tradition, originated by German immigrants in Cincinnati, that brings choirs from around the country together to celebrate the Christmas season?
- What was the name of the 1988 movie filmed in Cincinnati and Norther Kentucky that starred Andrew McCarthy and Molly Ringwald?
- Cincinnati’s Daniel Carter Beard founded the Sons of Daniel Boone in 1905. What organization did the Sons of Daniel Boone eventually become?
And here are the answers:
- The inaugural Saengerfest, the first in North America, was held in Cincinnati in 1849. It consisted of almost two thousand singers and over 60 choirs. Cincinnati was bringing thousands of people into the area to witness these celebrations and even attracting national attention. This year’s celebration will take place at six different locations around the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood on December 1 & 2. It will include winning singers from the World Choir Games and many other groups from all over the tri-state area.
- “Fresh Horses” tells the story of an Ohio engineering student (Andrew McCarthy) who falls in love with a country girl from across the river (Molly Ringwald). The two actors appeared in “Pretty in Pink,” in 1986, but “Fresh Horses” tells a much darker tale of obsessive passion and the effects of a caste-system mentality that exists in this part of the world. Filming started in November of 1987 in the Kentucky counties of Boone, Kenton, and Gallatin, as well as the University of Cincinnati and Kings Island on the Ohio side.
- Daniel Carter Beard was an American illustrator and author. Born in Cincinnati and educated at Worrall’s Academy in Covington, KY, he made his way to New York City and eventually illustrated several books for Mark Twain. Once he became the editor of Recreation magazine, his organizing of the Sons of Daniel Boone, which eventually became the Boy Scouts of America, fostered outdoor activities and civic engagement for generations of young men to this day. His autobiography, Hardly a Man Is Now Alive, was published in 1939.
